GLOBAL PR SUMMIT ISTANBUL 5 ADDS FAKE NEWS TO THE PROGRAM
It is becoming increasingly difficult to assess whether information is authentic. The ability to critically question everything we read has never been more important. ‘Fake news’ and ‘post-truth’ are a new threat to the reputation of organisations, genuine news media and the PR profession as a whole. Every PR practitioner now needs to be able to understand these issues and be able to deal with it on behalf of their clients and organisations.
